Restoration of Shinji Lake (Shimane Prefecture)

Shinji Lake is located in the eastern area of Shimane Prefecture. It is a typical brackish lake in Japan together with Nakaumi. Its rich nature and excellent landscape are used for fishery, sightseeing and recreation.
However, the conditions surrounding the water environment are severe due to socioeconomic activities and the changes in lifestyle in the peripheral basin, thus water quality conservation is an important issue to be solved.
Under the circumstances, a “lake water quality conservation plan” to conserve the water quality has been drawn up and various water quality improvement programs are being conducted. In addition, activities to plant and grow reeds have been promoted by industry - government - academia - private collaboration including local elementary school students and the pollution load in the basin is steadily decreasing.
